The Oklahoma basketball program is in search of a new head coach following the retirement of Lon Kruger, and it looks like a “leading candidate” has already emerged.

According to college basketball insider Adam Zagoria, the leading candidate to take over in Norman is none other than Loyola Chicago head coach Porter Moses.

Loyola Chicago’s impressive run in the NCAA Tournament came to an end in the Elite Eight and Moses will be a hot commodity — especially with the Indiana Hoosiers job open — but it looks like the Sooners could land the highly-coveted coach.

Moses, who holds a 6-1 record in the NCAA Tournament, has won three Mountain Valley Conference regular-season titles and two MVC Tournaments since taking over at Loyola Chicago, while also leading the Ramblers to the Final Four in 2018 when he was named Coach of the Year.

Since 2011, Moses has a 188-140 overall record at Loyola-Chicago and it could be time to see what he can bring to a Power Five program.
